I can see a lot of hubs on the same subject that I am writing about and they haven't been flagged as adult content. There are hubs on sex and male enlargement, so why is mine being flagged, at first I was flagged for overly promotion and I fixed that, now another flag for adult content??? COMMON! I know I'm new here but this just seems ridiculous like I'm being picked on. Why is my Hub being singled out and the first time it was flagged why didn't it get flag for adult content? Something is not right and I hate feeling like the time I spent writing it is wasted. I was really hoping to be a part of this community but this just feels like Squidoo and it's new censorship policy.
You miss the point Mark, who are to judge what I choose to write about? Yes! I have a genuine interest in helping...what about the numerous hubs on subjects more controversial or sexual? They're all live.
Ps. My hub does not have graphic pictures or content.
my grandma always say, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, so in your case be sweet with the team,ask the team to explain what content in your hub is not acceptable and revise it,make all the changes that they require and you will be fine
It may just be bad luck, Sara - the HubPages team is a small one and can't be everywhere at once. Sometimes they miss "illegal" Hubs for quite some time, other times they pick them up immediately.
Just remember that the rules are not set by HubPages. We all depend for our income on Adsense. If any Hubs break Adsense rules, it puts the whole site's earnings in jeopardy.
Unfortunately Adsense is not only a prude, but a dumb robotic prude. People who write serious Hubs about sexual matters fall foul of the rules because of the words used - whereas saucy pictures of semi-clad women are allowed. I'm sure the HubPages team think the rules are as stupid as we do, but they have to safeguard our livelihood. Be thankful for that!
Before my hub was suspended, it was published and there was google adsense on it. I have a blogger blog with google adsense on the subject, so I know it's not google's policy. I think it's just bad luck and who ever reviewed my hub used their discretion but I really don't believe I broke any rules with the content.
I'm not exactly sure what on your Hub is being flagged.
If it was flagged for not being original content or duplicate work is available somewhere else, then that's the reason it was flagged.
As for the adult content? This depends on what mature content you're trying to put on?
Adsense forbids it's ads on any mature rated content. So, the Hubs that you do see on certain things, there is a difference between writing about a topic or being pornography.
That fine line is demonstrated throughout ALL my photo Hubs. Each of my photo hubs are okay by the standard of HubPages. These hubs are not adult content or even mature, because each of them have clothes on.
I hope I helped.
Btw- if you're really want to push the boundaries- check out my demonstration of sensuality or erotica. It's a hub about an intimate friendship that has a tender touch.
I just did that but I had to vent here a bit because I wrote my first Hub 2 days ago and I was so excited but now the excitement is gone, I had so many ideas but can't bring myself to write because not sure if it'll be a waste of my time.
When you were a child and made your first steps that was exciting,but i know you fell down many times,if you never get up and try again you would never learn to walk,well guess what, if you have great ideas just keep on writing,eventually you will get on, im cheering for you,i know i will read your hubs real soon,have a bless day.
Rest assured, we're not picking on you particularly.
Sometimes, a hub will be removed for one reason, and then upon resubmission, we notice something else. In this case, your hub was overly promotional for too many links, and adult because of the product you were promoting.
You are always free to contact us and ask for more information if you are unsure why your hub has been moderated.
It would almost sound as though you want to be singled out. Rewrite the hub, or change the subject matter, but keep writing, or else quit. Your post sounds like you want to quit, so make your mind up and do it, there are a lot of things to write about, and we really do have fun here.
You have a very get along attitude young lady,thats clear by your posts.Learning the ropes is unsettling but as Roosevelt said to the Indians"Endeavor to persevere",but then look what happened to them.HP needs people with your attitude.Don't let the negative comments put you off.Pay attention to the constructive ones.
Would you say the Indians were successful in there perseverance?Encouraging new writers is not as prevalent as it should be.Painting a rosy picture is just as negative as the caustic comments made in the forums.The Implication of the comment is to write on with the awareness that success is not guaranteed........Hmmmmmmmm.
Thanks, I truly appreciate it, you guys really made me feel welcome in this community. I can't wait till my new hubs are approved. Isabelle, you just gave me an idea of a hub to write, I think I'll go ahead and take care of that right now.
Like running your car on water or forex trading. You really think you can enlarge your penis by doing an exercise? And this pretty young lady just wants to help? Maybe she will pop 'round to your house and show you how to do the workout?
The less scams the better as far as I am concerned, which is why I gave a "negative" reaction to the OP.
And I thought you were all about increasing the quality here too?
Once there is one scammer here, the rest follow in droves. But what we really need is 10,000 pages on how to increase the size of your penis. That should increase the size of the site's authority. Right?
You really are quite judgmental without knowing anything...Believe it or not, a man can increase the size of his penis with exercises, it has nothing to do with scamming. Do the research before you open your mouth to speak. Do you even understand the meaning of a SCAM? If I was a scammer would I still be here? Would I bother to write other hubs about different things?..At first your comments were cute, but now you are just sounding like an annoying brat.
LOl...Wakeup, you must be dreaming if you really believe you're 12 inches, subtract 10 from the 12. And yes, you can be helped. Google dry Jelq. Do a search on it...it's a simple exercise that can help you or any other man with your penis size.
Reading this thread, I admire the way you've handled all kinds of comments here. Cool. You'll do well I'm sure...but its only HP staff that can help you with this, so best of luck! Looking forward to reading that hub!
didn't say i wanted to see it stay published, lol I just want to see what the big deal is, I have seen some pretty risque hubs and more than my share of hubs that had about 25 words and a link to some BS scam but I like to see what is out there and what to be watching for. I flag them when I find them, I had 2 of my hubs flagged for over promotional and my hubs are more informative than promotional, I am not selling anything or asking anyone to sign up anywhere and I have very few affiliate links to anything other adsense and amazon
Funny thing is, the hub that began all this does not have an affiliate product in it any longer, I took it out because now all I care about is just having it shown. It's not the greatest hub in the world but it was my very first hub and that's why it's important to me. Am not sure if that makes any sense.
LMAO, you guys r terrible, May I just say that if none of us have seen her hub should we really be judging it? also just because she believes something that the rest don't doesn't mean she shouldn't be heard. I personally don't believe in penis enlargement, never needed it, the thing hangs to my knees already...LMAO I also don't really believe in all of the health food crap out there either but I don't see the ones who promote it being judged...honestly if the hub is spam or too promotional then it should be fixed but I don't think we should be judging without seeing it.
I am waiting for the revision, hopefully it will happen later today and I already have two hubs waiting for approval before going live, I am writing one of them right now and I have been a member for only 3 days, so if all my hubs are approved today, I should have 3 live hubs up before the end of the day.
Oh Sufi u r so modest. Do you not remember it was me responsible for your super rod after I accidentally got it caught in the bathroom door when you were getting ready to do your nudey run from the shower..
LOL You seem like a decent little girl, and I would gladly let you train mine - but without expecting it to get any bigger. You've been lied to, and tricked into believing the lie.
Trust the old grumpy soul, you will do much better when you switch your promotional effort to something more sustainable. And no, I don't mean a lemon cleanser or water4gas or any other miracle, I mean something real.
lol, Another pervy old man, don't be fooled, I might be new to hubpages but I am not new to the internet. If I pick a niche, I know exactly what I am doing and I have prove that it works. I pick niches from my own life.
MY very first approved Hub is now live...It's called confessions of a Hubpages Newbie...Please take a look and leave comments on what you think about it and how I can improve, if you think I need improvement (looking at you Misha). Thanks guys.
I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For...

HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why...
Ok I am at my end! I seem to be having an issue with HP. Everytime I flag something I end up getting flagged. Yesterday I published my 2nd part in a 3 part series on Jeffrey Dahmer. Ads were taken and I was fine with...
